    My DD has four haemangiomas, one of them is very large. While she was in the NICU they did a liver scan to make sure there were none growing there. BUT they said that was only because of the 'multiple' factor and having one or two is not a concern. We also had a referral to dermatology and the local children's hospital who checked them and advised they were OK.

    The risk with a haemangioma large enough is that it can damage the red blood cells when passing through, as it is a collection of blood vessels. The solution is to put the baby on beta blockers.

    I would ask for referral to determatology if concerned, but even with 4 including a huge one we were told it was nothing to worry about.

    my daughter has 2 one on her forehead and one on the INSIDE of her eyelid, rubbing on her eyeball. it balloons out when she cries and affects her vision. we have seen an eye specialist who has reffered us to a paed, and are waiting on an appointment. the problem with the one on the eyelid is it will affect her sight development. so we are hoping we will be given beta blockers to get rid of it asap before she becomes mobile.

    the eye specialist said it they usually go away by 5 years of age. but imo im not waiting that long because of her sight.

    At 3 months i wouldn't worry about it too much, keep an eye on them and see how much they grow. The one on her head was quite raised at some point I was worried it would burst or get baged on something. Anyway its flat now. If they're not in places where they're bothersome I would wait and see, but def keep an eye on them.

    Hi
    DD was born with one on the back of her neck- I noticed it when she was a couple of days old and it was just a tiny red dot which I thought was a mark from the being born with the cord around her neck, but it grew rapidly and the area under it seemed swollen. I had an ultrasound done on it as advised by my doctor and found it has a collection of blood vessels beneath it which is why it looks raised.
    It is now a little bigger than a 10c coin but seems to have stopped growing. I had it measured by the MCHN 2 weeks ago just to keep an eye on it's size/growth rate.
    I was informed that it will eventually disappear and slowly start fading from around 2 years of age.
